NZ Herald: Former New Plymouth mayor Andrew Judd appears at select committee to fight for Māori wards

Former New Plymouth mayor Andrew Judd has taken his fight for Māori to be better represented at council level to Parliament.

Judd told a parliamentary committee today that allowing binding referendums on whether councils can establish Māori wards was cruel and divisive.

“There are two laws in New Zealand, one for the general population and one for Māori.”

“From experience, and we’re seeing it now through five other councils across the country, make the process the same.”
